Trying Out A New Lens

A week or so ago, I was hired to shoot a local Blue and Gold banquet for the Scouts.
It was a fun and interesting event ;) I got my feet wet doing an event and am forever grateful for the opportunity. I don't even want to think about doing a wedding HA!

Anyway, since it was inside, and I didn't know what kind of lighting they would have, I decided to rent a fast lens. I decided to rent the Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/1.4. 
I was very pleased with the results. Here are a few shots I took of some of the table decorations:

This is a great lens to have but for about $370 on sale, it's pretty pricey.
I have gotten some really good deals on ebay that I will share with you shortly.
Mainly because I have begun to shoot with film again :)

Oh to go back in time....

What are your favorite lenses?

  1. Cute decorations. Love the last shot! Can only imagine how excited the boys were to walk in and see bits and pieces of their imaginations in still on each table.
